Review: Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge

If you’re drawn to Android phones, welcome to an embarrassment of riches. There are so many great phones that it’s hard to settle on one for long, because another amazing Android phone comes along every 12 minutes.

The new greatest Android handset of all is the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Or maybe it’s that phone’s sibling, the less-curvy and smaller Galaxy S7. Either way, you’re getting a tremendous combination of photographic firepower, in-hand comfort, build quality, water resistance, processing, and pragmatism. They’re super-versatile, and that’s before you get to the part where they’re the cornerstones of an excellent VR platform.

Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge

8/10

Wired

Fast-focusing camera is wonderful in low light. Go ahead and use these phones in the shower. Delicious handfeel. Beautiful screens. MicroSD slots. Compatibile with Gear VR headset. The Edge’s curvy display doesn’t need a purpose to be cool.

Tired

TouchWiz UI doesn’t react as quickly or smoothly as stock Android. A lot of storage space is taken up by preinstalled stuff.
